open letter

Dear Pediatrician:

I realize that a sick toddler is gross. However, if you cannot help a mother with a screaming, pukey child in your exam room–even enough to bring in some paper towels–you should not be a pediatrician. You should be a secretary or a mechanic or a scientist or something.

That is all.

p.s. Also, if you are not going to examine the child, possibly you should have told the mother to stay home and given the same incredibly vague, general advice over the phone.
